United are now tied on points with rivals Manchester City but are second on the log due to the Citizens superior goal difference, and will be looking at maintaining their unbeaten start to the season and getting maximum point against the Eagles who have endured a awful start to the campaign.
Anthony Martial is likely to be fit for Manchester United's Premier League home game against Crystal Palace on Saturday despite appearing to pick up a minor injury in midweek. After a big victory in the UCL, they look to head back to Old Trafford on Saturday and score another victory as they take on Crystal Palace.
Diafra Sakho scored a 90th minute victor in West Ham's 4 - 0 win Swansea while Bournmouth could only hold Leicester City to a draw in their game.
Jose Mourinho's side hasn't lost in its last twenty Premier League matches.
Do you think Manchester United will win the Premier League this season?
United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted.
Key players are sidelined with injuries, but the hosts will be lucky that they aren't facing a club that challenges for the title with their injury-ravaged team. Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, are doubts while Mourinho says he is hopeful that Marouane Fellaini could be involved after a knock last week. Ashley Young meanwhile should continue at left-back with Mourinho liking his crossing ability and attacking nature.
That buoyed United, with Chris Smalling heading inches wide and Hennessey making a good save from Rashford at his near post as a demoralised Palace side went into the break two behind. The Swedish legend will have a part to play when he returns from injury, but he won't be a regular starter ahead of Lukaku.
That has rarely been the case since his arrival at Old Trafford but eight wins from nine games in all competitions has left everyone associated with the club believing that this can finally be the year where they reclaim a place among European football's elite.
Crystal Palace: 4-2-3-1Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Sakho, Aanholt, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Townsend, Schlupp, Loftus-Cheek, and Sako.
Leicester, in 1984, are the last team to lose their first six top-flight matches and stay up.
The main threat for United will again be Romelu Lukaku who already has six Premier League goals and will be relishing taking on a side that has conceded 13 in six games.
